Gospel artist Justina Syokau’s well of godly lyrics has dried up; her spiritual life is hitherto as barren as Sarah in the bible. Consequently, to remain relevant, she has decided to court controversy- and do so fiercely.
If she is not twerking, she is wooing Ringtone Apoko. But perhaps all these wahala stems from past trauma?
Justina has revealed that she was in an abusive marriage that made her stay single for 8 years.
The Twendi Twendi hitmaker said that she stayed in the marriage out of fear of what people would say considering she is a saved woman.
“I have been single for 8 years. When Covid-19 hit is when being single hit me, I never thought I would ever want to get married again. Getting divorced brought me stress because I did not know where to begin, It is God who gave me the strength to move on. I stayed because I am born again, I stayed because of what people would have said.”
Justina says her ex-husband was once caught sleeping with a neighbor and when she confronted him he was unapologetic.
“He cheated with people who are close to me. The women would leave their bra and earrings on our matrimonial bed. When I asked about it he would tell me to go ask the people who sleep on that bed. There is a day I came out of the house and people were looking at me funny.
I went to my neighbor’s house because I assumed nimevaa nguo vibaya only to find out my husband sleeping with another woman. He would disrespect me, take me to ushago and never send money, he would fill people in our home yet he never provided a dime.”
Her advice to other people was;
“Disrespect is very bad, If you do not need somebody do not get married to them. Even if you get into a marriage that day and realize you don’t love that person leave. Instead of stressing them. If I get married again, I cannot withstand madharau/disrespect.”
In an interview last year, Syokau said she is looking for a man who is filthy rich and good in bed.
“Some call me saying, ‘I am a farmer in Kisii’. Do you think I can go to Kisii nikalime na hii look yangu?” she asked.
“I am not looking for a poor man. I am looking for a rich man, one who is driving Range Rovers if not flying a chopper.
“I am done with living small. If you are interested and have that among the other qualities I am looking for in a man, then you can start writing your application. Someone in his 40s or 50s. Someone who is still sexually fit. Someone whose services are legit. Someone who will support my music career.”
